That Thing You Do
The Wonders strike a pose

20th Century Studios

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video
When to watch: April 1

Sure this isn’t a new movie, but it is a total charmer. Tom Hanks directs this lovely story of a one-hit-wonder band as they embark on fame and fortune. Featuring a stellar cast of familiar faces and a titular song that’ll be stuck in your head for days, this is an ultimate feel good watch. This is also the first time it’s been on one of the main streamers for a while so take advantage of that. We love this film!

Arlo the Alligator Boy
An animated alligator plays music on the subway


Where to watch: Netflix
When to watch: April 16

If you’re a fan of animation, this should be at the top of your watch list. Sweet, inclusive, and filled with gorgeous tunes, Netflix’s new animated musical feature is a delight. “The movie follows Arlo, a wide-eyed boy who is half human and half alligator, as he leaves his sheltered life in the swamp and searches for his long lost father.” Family, friendship, and finding yourself are all key themes here and this will likely be a new fave for young viewers.

Cruel Summer Season Premiere
Everything Coming to Streaming in April_2


Where to watch: Hulu
When to watch: April 21

This ambitious teen mystery has a pilot so powerful you have to watch it. The show follows two young women over three years. The unpopular and nerdy Jeanette and the high school Queen Bee Kate Wallis. Told with three intersecting and often conflicting timelines—1993, 1994, and 1995—this is one of the most engaging and exciting first episodes we’ve seen in a while. What’s the mystery? Well, when Kate goes missing in 1994 Jeanette gains a social status she never considered possible, but by 1995 Jeanette is the most hated teen in the country… why? You’ll have to watch.

Shadow and Bone
Alina and Malyen stare at each other intensely in Shadow and Bone.


Where to watch: Netflix
When to watch: April 23

In case you haven’t noticed this is one of our most anticipated shows. Adapted from Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone trilogy and her follow up duology Six of Crows, the Netflix fantasy looks like a truly epic entry into the genre. Set in the Russian-inspired locale of Ravka the show follows Alina and Mal as they discover the former has a life-changing power. Alina is quickly thrown into the world of the magical Grisha and their enigmatic leader General Kirigan. As she embarks on her new life Mal is left behind and desperate to find a way back to his closest friend. And then there’s the criminal crew known as the Crows…
